Top 10 Forgotten Trends
They say fashion is temporary, but class is permanent. Personally I have no idea what that means. Here are 10 of the best trends from the past that we’ve all basically forgotten about.
1: Pokémon Cards: Remember, back in the day, when getting a shiny Zapdos was the most important moment of the year? It’s the same year your grandpa died, but you were psyched to get that Zapdos, right?
2: Vinyl: Remember 30 years ago, when a lot of the people reading this weren’t alive and we all used vinyl? And they were so big and bulky and cumbersome. Fucking good times, am I right?
3: Doing Drugs in a Bin with Strangers: If I remember one thing about the nineties, this was all the fuckin’ rage. I was born in early 1993, and so had 7 long years of doing drugs with strangers in one of my many fantastic local bins, before ‘Broken Britain’ became passé.
4. Stick and Hoop Game: Remember back in the Victorian times guys, when kids made their own fun? Don’t you miss it? A stick and a hoop rolling along the ground could be a computer, or a rocket ship, or an 80ft yacht to a Victorian child! Now all kids have are video games where they can live out every possible different reality to its illogical conclusion.
5. Burying Your Neighbour’s Pet in the Night: Ha! We used to do this all the time back in the day! Remember when you’d just accidentally kill your neighbour’s pets in a series of bizarre experiments that went wrong, so you’d just hide the body in your shed then go into the park and bury them at night with your friend Dan? Good times.
6: Cheeky Nando’s: That was a thing a few weeks ago right? Sort of died down now. But it was funny for a while when Americans didn’t understand it, and we laughed at them for a bit. Haha. Yeah. Fun.
7: Buzzfeed-style Lists: List-based anything was good for like, 2009-2014, but it definitely seems to be on the way out now. I mean like 12 people are reading this, which sort of proves my point.
8: Meta-humour: Everyone knows meta-humour has had its day. It was a glorious, sunny and extremely smug day, and now it’s finished. And anyone who does it looks like a dick.
9: Friends: Remember how great it was when you used to have friends, but you haven’t spoken to them or anyone else for years cause you’re hiding out in a shed west of Dakota having committed a series of bizarre erotic robberies? Also the TV show friends, which was quite good.
10: Emojis: Give ‘em 6 months .
